Weeknight Ravioli Lasagna

My husband and I love lasagna, but it's time-consuming to build and we always end up with too much. Using frozen ravioli solves everything. —Pamela Nicholson, Festus, Missouri

    I used meat filled ravioli and this was excellent. Look forward to using other kinds of ravioli in the future.

    This is for mugsymom2010. When I lived in KS, I used to buy Roserita Cheese Ravioli. Now that I'm in CO, I prefer Louisiana Cheese Ravioli.

    If someone can tell me of a brand of frozen ravioli or frozen lasagna that is good, please let me know. I have a friend who invites us to dinner occasionally and has served Stoffer's lasagna. It looks good but isn't, just does not taste like real lasagna. I have found a few brands of jarred sauce that are good, but would rather make a cheese sandwich than settle for mediocre lasagna.

    OK, but not a favorite.

    This has become a staple to send back with my son in grad school. I add a pound of ground round cooked and omit spinach. I've made it with a variety of ravoili and sauces - good every time! I mix the sauce and meat together to cool off the meat, then fix as directed and pop back in freezer. It tastes like it was made fresh when he cooks it. So easy and filling for hungry students!

    I make this often with a slight variation. I add a container of cottage cheese and browned ground beef and one egg to the spinach. Makes a delicious center layer. Huge hit with the family. And i do not preheat the sauce.

    It's a great way to serve a meatless entree to my family who base every meal on meat.Lots of ways to dress it up or make just as the recipe states. Very good, quick, easy. I prepared a big pan to take to a potluck dinner and nothing was left behind. That speaks for itself!
